You might have no idea how to do food and wine pairings. There are many people who are clueless about what wines go with dessert and what wines go with fish. This article will help you figure out what foods to pair with wine.
Enjoy wine tasting events. They are lots of fun and can introduce you to things you may not have otherwise tried. You can turn it into a social outing, too. Talk to your family and friends and invite them along. If you have a large group, consider splitting the cost of a limousine.
If you are really into it, build a wine cellar, it is worth it. You cannot store expensive wine or large quantities of wine in your kitchen for long periods of time. A wine cellar will ensure that your wine’s quality remains high for a long duration.
To get the best aroma and flavor from your wine, store it at the proper temperature. For example, any red wine tastes its best near 60 degrees Fahrenheit. In order to let the wine warm in the glass, start it at 58 degrees. If you are serving a white wine, chill it to 47 degrees. White wines taste dull when they are too warm.
You should not drink reds and whites in the same glasses. White wines are best served in a narrow wine glass, which keeps air away from the wine with its smaller opening. Reds, though, should be in wider glasses with broad mouths. This allows more air into your glass to let the wine warm and boost the flavor.
Choosing which wine to pair with food can seem intimidating to many. Implement the above information to ensure you have a working knowledge of all things wine. Try different things, and settle on what works.
